Young children have sky-high hopes for their holidays, with nearly half fancying a trip to the Moon, a survey has revealed.
More down-to-earth youngsters crave a visit to Disney World in Florida, while others would like a holiday in CS Lewis's fantasy world of Narnia, the poll by online travel agency www.sunshine.co.uk found.
The findings were based on a survey of 2,105 British parents with children aged between three and eight, with the youngsters being asked about places they would most like to visit on holiday.
Other popular spots for the youngsters included Hogsmeade - the village in the Harry Potter stories -as well as Harry's school, Hogwarts.
Some of the small children also opted for Lapland, Hundred Acre Wood (home to AA Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends) and for Pride Rock (from the Lion King).
Ambitious, but more grounded youngsters, fancied a trip to Australia, while others looked forward to a visit to Bikini Bottom, the underwater city in the American animated TV series SpongeBob SquarePants.
Sunshine.co.uk co-founder Chris Brown said: "Having four kids of my own, I know that mine would pick Disney over any destination, but it's incredibly cute to see that so many selected fictional destinations and the Moon."
